French-themed series of four-course dinners and musical performances in refurbished East Austin church

(AUSTIN, Texas - October 26, 2010) Danika Boyle, proprietor of Petite Peche & Co., the Austin-based boutique culinary travel company and cooking studio, has announced the studio's first "Salon Style" dinner series at Church House Studios, 1161 Nickols Avenue. Inspired by 17th and 18th century French salons, the series will include an evening of dinner and music in the restored church that houses both the recording and cooking studios owned by Danika and her husband, musician and producer, David Boyle.

The Salons will be curated around the culinary extensions and influences of France and begin with the Indochine Period. The first Indochine-themed Salon takes place Saturday, November 20, from 7-10 pm. The evening includes a four-course meal prepared by Danika along with music curated by David along with possible surprise performances. With an impressive list of producing and performing credits with everyone from Alejandro Escovedo, Justin Timberlake, Blondie Chaplin, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Schneider, Bebel Gilberto, Charlie Sexton, James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins, Stephen Barber, Tosca Sting Quartet and Gavin DeGraw to locals Dan Dyer and Amy Cook there's no telling who might drop by. "The Church is the creative work studio and home to me, David and our son Charlie, so it's a natural extension to combine our work and life passions and share with others," says Danika. "Of course, there's no better city in which to create these celebrations of great food and music than in Austin," she continued.

The salons are limited to 40 attendees at $70 per person. Guests are encouraged to bring their own wine or alcoholic beverage of choice. To register, visit http://www.petitepecheandco.com/. Upcoming dates include December 11 and January 22.
